Bottle. Hazy medium gold with a pillowy bright white head. The nose smells like cheap lemon candy, artificial. There is also some hint of soap. The taste is fairly sweet. Itís like mixing the regular meh shock top wit with a cheap lemonade. Wow, pretty much exactly what you would expect. Not too bad and the sweetness is tempered after a few drinks. A bland cardboard finish.

Lagerboy (1171) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 10, 2014
341 ml bottle from the Summer Variety pack, the best of the bunch, which isnít saying much. Mostly clear yellow, fine white foam. Lemony aroma and taste, mildly malty. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Inoffensive refreshing hot day beverage. MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

I preferred this one to the Summer Shandy next to it. It has more wheat beer flavor and less stale lemonade. Still, the lemon flavoring is pretty sub-standard, and therefore itís not a beer Iíd ever ask for.

BuckeyeBoy (2603) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 7, 2014
12oz bottle pours out a hazy straw topped with a small white head. Nose is citrus lemon juice and some sweetness. Taste is more of the nasty lemon juice tast and some sweetness.

gendv138 (973) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Draft during RBSG 2014 at the Anheuser-Busch Biergarten. Hazy yellow with off-white head. Aromas of lemons, soda. Tastes of lemons, wheat, lemonade. Light body with a dry finish. Fine.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
Can: Poured a light yellow color ale with a light bubbly head with average retention. Aroma of lemon syrup with quite a bit of residual sugars is closer to juice than beer. Taste is a mix between some wheat malt notes with quite a bit of residual sugar and some lemon syrup notes. Body is light with good carbonation. Easy drinking wheat beer with a tad too much sugar thought.

TheRatKing (102) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
From a can into a chalice. Pours a cloudy gold colour, which I approve of in a wheat beer. No head, though. Aroma is weak (due to lack of head,) but has a slight sweet and zesty note. Flavour is actually not bad at all. Has that white beer richness and spice with a hint of lemon to it. Actually rather good. I wouldnít compare it to Hoegaarden in terms of wheat beer, but it is rather flavourful and suitable for a hot day.

Spab (2241) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
473 ml can from LCBO. Pours a cloudy golden colour with thin white head. Aroma is dominated sweet candied lemon with hints of wheat. Flavour is also quite sweet with candyish lemon overwhelming everything else - maybe a little wheat shows through but thatís about it. Underwhelming body. Not a winner.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Draft pour at the end of the tour at Anheuser-Busch in St. Louis. Pours a hazy yellow color with a big white head. Notes of lemon candy, sweetened cereal (Fruity Pebbles or Froot Loops or some such nonsense), minerals, and wheat. Light-medium bodied, with high carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Iíd probably rather have this than the Raspberry, but itís close.

Homer321 (1591) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Draft at STL brewery. Pours a very hazy yellow with almost no head. Aroma is lemon. Taste is a lemon line Popsicle kinda thing with a crisp finish. Decent.

Strykzone (4781) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Sampled at Heritage Fest. Because why not? Hazy white gold. A lemon nose, as expected. Wheat notes are almost zero. Lemon woth a little malt. Ok, I did it.
